Graphic 45 "An ABC Primer" Wall Hanging

Good morning, Blogger peeps! I am sure fall is in the air for most of you. Even here in southern California we've had some fall weather! We are gearing up for Thanksgiving and the upcoming Christmas season. To celebrate the fall, I have a Graphic 45 project to show you.

I found a 6 1/8 x 6 1/8 square of chipboard in my stash and decided to make a wall hanging out of it. It's amazing what you can make with trash these days!

I inked all around the edges of the chipboard with chalk ink, and then covered the square with An ABC Primer papers (Building Blocks and Happy Go Lucky). I loved the little poem on the paper and thought it  was perfect for a fall project.

I used a Crop-a-Dile to punch holes in the chipboard, then used some May Arts thick twine as a hanger.

To create all of the leaves, I die cut the shapes from Core'dinations Signature Series Graphic 45 cardstock using Spellbinders™ Foliage and Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents die templates.

Once I had cut all of the shapes, I sanded them to reveal the core of the paper. The distressed leaves give a vintage and dimensional look to the wall art.

If you love to decorate for the holidays, I hope you find some inspiration here, and at the Graphic 45 Blog!
